Cross/Walks: Weaving Fabric Row is an art installation and project by Hana Iverson and students from Temple University that mines, maps and constructs a dynamic portrait of South Philadelphia’ Fabric Row, the spine of an evolving, historically Jewish neighborhood. The dimensions of this locative-media project include an audio history/portrait with cell phone access, and orientation by an originally designed map, allowing participants to hear oral history and author their own contributions, as well as a multi-media installation and web site, www.cross-walks.org, allowing navigation of all the project’s elements. Hana Iverson engaged her Neighborhood Narratives class to participate in Cross/Walks; the students have been integrally involved in the project’s development. The installation was open April 20 – Aug. 15, 2007.
